Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Victor Sanders scored 24 points on Saturday night, and Idaho led almost the entire way to beat Cal Poly 75-66 in the third-place game of the Great Alaska Shootout.

Sanders was 7 of 12 from 3-point range, Nate Sherwood added 17 points, Perrion Callandret scored 14 and Brayon Blake 10. The Vandals (4-2) led 57-39 near the middle of the second half after a 15-3 run.

The Mustangs (3-4) closed within 65-58 on Victor Joseph’s 3-pointer with 2:44 left. But Callandret answered with a 3 and the Vandals made 7 of 10 foul shots from there.

Joseph led the Mustangs with 23 points and Luke Meikle and Donovan Fields added 10 each. Cal Poly finished fifth place in the eight-team tournament.

Cal Poly had an 8-0 run to cut the deficit to 42-36 early in the second half and also made it close for a short stretch near the end of the first half before the Vandals had a 14-5 run and led 37-28 at the break.
